In the past few weeks WM Recordings has released three new albums:

WM078: brunk - sept 2003
http://www.wmrecordings.com/releases/wm078.htm

DIY lowbudget homerecording, without any musical restrictions or stylistic premises. The songs on 'sept 2003' were made somewhere between 2000 and september 2003. It's not easy to describe or to pigeonhole, but I guess the music brunk recorded in those days had a certain pop kitsch factor, a naïeve but eclectic touch, and tries to explore some musical boundaries in a very personal way.

WM079: Happy Elf - Loose your head
http://www.wmrecordings.com/releases/wm079.htm

Five instrumental analog dance tracks to make you feel good. Each track has a distinctive minimalistic atmosphere. The beats are bare and simple, the sounds nice and dirty. So when you've had a bad day, wanna shake a leg, need some positive energy: listen to these tracks. Happiness guaranteed!

WM080: brunk - none of the above
http://www.wmrecordings.com/releases/wm080.htm

'none of the above', the follow-up to 'sept 2003', is a further exploration of the melancholic and more accessible side of brunk. It has a quiet vibe and mostly slow songs. Once again these songs are made of overdubbed and edited layers of cut-and-pasted guitars, softwaresynths, samples, beats etc; with at the same time lots of improvised elements and spontanuous aspects, uncorrected imperfections and a perhaps slightly naieve 'homerecording lo-fi' touch.

best wishes,
